We will get our usual post Mania rematches like what always happens at the next PPV.

Be interesting to see if Brock or Goldberg get booked in some way for the show or have disappeared again until Summerslam time.

Post Mania Raw always has a few debuts so whoever they are (Roode? Nakamura?) will freshen up the card.

WWE have cleverly used the superstar shake up to allow them to book Orton vs Wyatt for the World title on this show so this helps cover for the fact that Universal champ Brock Lesnar will be sitting this event out even though this puts him in violation of the thirty day defence rule unless he defends at a house show which I doubt. Brock isn't expected to defend until June or July which once again is poor booking by WWE and contradicts the thirty day rule which they've preached so heavily in the past when it comes to every talent besides Lesnar it seems, makes me wonder if they will say Brock has a contract clause making him exempt, in a way they should at least that provides some sort of storyline excuse rather than just removing Brock and the title from TV with no explanation and just expecting fans to swallow it.

I hope they do something different and really wacky and crazy with the house of horrors match, something along the lines of the TNA final deletion match would be good, however my gut feeling says this will just be similar to past matches like a cage with weapons inside or something else completely unoriginal. The good news is this is expected to be the blow off match to this dull feud that has failed to deliver in the ring.

As Owens is facing Jericho makes me wonder if we will see Ambrose vs Corbin in a rubber match as well, although nothing was suggested for that this week, in a way that's good as it keeps Corbin strong with one win a piece in the feud.

The marketing is so off on this PPV. It should say RAW and SD presents PAYBACK. as of right now there are two matches involving guys from SD. They still have time to change it as it is no longer a Raw exclusive event all thanks to the shakeup.

WWE doesn't even know what the house of horrors match will be, which is why they put out surveys this week. I think it will be very similar to The Asylum match that Dean Ambrose created.

The main match for Raw will be Braun vs Reigns.

Unclear if the same stipulation applies to the WWE title just like the US title. WWE has been really lazy and poor when it comes to explaining situations. They have those two titles matches but only keeping the stipulation of one title (US) attached to a brand and not both titles is just mind boggling.

Watch for it on Raw, they will try to fix that so there is no conclusion. They should have said whom ever walks away with the WWE title will stay on SD and the loser goes to Raw. But I do not think they'll do that. Since both shows use two different writing teams, it is very clear which show has the weaker team.

They have really messed this one up havent they, doing the mini draft and switching some stars even before they have had the ppv.
And as there are more re-matches from Mania I still always look at this ppv as Backlash, I dont know why they changed the name from that because Payback suggest just the same thing actually.

Quote This is the rumored card for Payback so far:
 

WWE Championship Match: Randy Orton (c) vs. Bray Wyatt House of Horrors

United States Match: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Chris Jericho

Raw Tag Match: Hardy Boyz vs. Sheamus and Cesaro

Crusierweight Title: Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries

Samoa Joe vs. Seth Rollins

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman (though it may be scrapped)

 
I don't think even E know what an house of horrows match is yet.
 
Owens will win because two midcard titles aren't going to be on the same show.
 
Hardy Boyz and Neville will retain.

Isnt this poor though that at this late stage, they and we as fans dont have a clue what the main card is for the ppv. This Payback ppv has been done really badly, it makes it look like its all been rushed in the last five minutes!

Quote Here is the updated lineup for this Sunday night’s WWE Payback pay-per-view event:
 

House Of Horrors Match:
Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt

RAW Tag Team Title Match:
Matt and Jeff Hardy (c) vs. Sheamus and Cesaro

RAW Women’s Title Match:
Bayley (c) vs. Alexa Bliss

US Title Match:
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Chris Jericho

Cruiserweight Title Match:
Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman

Samoa Joe vs. Seth Rollins

Kickoff Show Match:
Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson

Kickoff Show Segment:
The Miz TV featuring guest Finn Balor

 
The kick off show with a decent looking tag match and what should be an entertaining segment, is looking more interesting than much of the main card.
 
Bray should be getting his automatic rematch instead of it being a non title match.
 
Womens match will be the piss break like the good old days.

Tag match will be the piss break. Bayley Bliss ought to be pretty damned good. Either that or Orton vs Wyatt is a go home early match because WTF cares?

Other than that it's a pretty solid lineup of matches.

I still dont rate Bayley, she really looks like a kid who has been taken out of the audience at the last minute, and they have decided to put the belt on her for a laugh. There are more believable champions on the roster and Alexa Bliss is definitely one of them.

On the whole Im totally uninterested in this ppv, they have handled it terribly as it involves Mania rematches between some stars who are now on opposite brands.
